I am Sam, I’m a youngish vegan mother of one baby/ toddler from Victoria, Australia. I decided to start a blog to let people in on my daily experiences, triumphs and struggles of being a first time mum – and lets be honest, the first few years can be pretty eventful right?
As a stay at home mum, I find you can have all the time in the world… or none at all, sometimes both in one day. So on days my little man is giving me some space, with either long naps or solo playtime.. I love to do research on some of the things I find interesting. I’m going to be honest, a lot of the research at the moment is into veganising some of my old favourite foods! Although I also like to dabble in things like wilderness survival techniques and skills, places to holiday around the world (who doesn’t?) and things I feel will assist or improve me as a parent.
I’m a strong believer in “eating your medicine” and using natural remedies for optimal health or remedying current ailments (disclaimer: I’m not a doctor/ nurse or other qualified professional or trying to give you medical advice – this is simply my preference in how I handle illness when it occurs). Oils, crystals and a heat bag are generally my go to first ‘strike’ choices. If you are interested in any of these things, I highly recommend doing some of your own research and speaking to alternative medicine practitioners.
I’d love to hear about some of the things you all do in your down time or if you have any favourite vegan recipes in the comments.
